My hat is off to anyone who has ever managed to get people to join and stay.

This is not looking good on the outside is it? I have a count of two, one is actively posting, the other a passive voter (with a large stash). It's still crap, I want to have added 50 people.

I've tried to get people to join but I gave up quite some time ago. Other people have been more successful than I have. But very few have managed to get people to stay.

I think the difficulty boils down to the complexity of the platform and its immature stage of development. Also, not only is Hive complex but it is that it hits the newcomer with a many novel concepts that are central to its operation, some of which are counter-intuitive. That's when you get questions like "where does the money come from" and when they don't understand they suspect it must be a scam.

The entire Hive ecosystem is currently an early adopter's paradise. Trouble is, only a small proportion of people have the early adopter mindset.

I think it pays to get used to the idea that "the masses" are incredibly slow to adopt new things that require taking even a little bit of trouble to learn.

Just like on Hive, the world is full of hidden opportunities that most people will never take advantage of.

"where does the money come from" and when they don't understand they suspect it must be a scam.

It's printed everyday, new coins ('yeah... it must be a scam, you can't make money'). Most people don't know our 'trusted banks' do exactly the same thing.

That is a good point.

Money is a very difficult concept. But that, too, is changing. Today's teenagers and children are used to virtual currencies in games, some of which have exchange rates against fiat currencies.
